Today we thought we’d provide a little throw-back to last weekend’s Kawasaki-sponsored New Zealand Motocross TT Championships near Taupiri.
The two days of racing was intense and exciting and, despite what might be expected from a track created simply by banging pegs into a flat and grassy paddock, it got very rough indeed by late on Sunday afternoon.
The main photo here shows Taupiri’s Billee Fuller (Kawasaki), who managed 10th overall in the senior women’s grade.
The host Patetonga Motorcycle Club staged a brilliant event and should be congratulated for putting on such a great show.
